Research in the Bioinspired Inorganic Chemistry Group revolves around model compounds and catalysts that mimic the roles metals play in Biology. Our goals are to: design novel catalysts; understand metalloproteins; develop treatments for adverse metalloprotein chemistry; and investigate the Chemistry of 2D nanomaterials. http://chemistry.tcd.ie/staff/people/mcdonald
